Q: Semi vs sedan accident
My dad hit a car with his semi truck and trailer. Driver and him agreed not to call the cops and for my dad to pay cash now he is asking for more money to fix the car. when we asked for an estimate, he refused.
A: A Wisconsin attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. I'm sorry this happened to your dad. He may want to consider a consult with an attorney because this might not end here. If the matter continues unresolved, or the other person develops injuries, then it's possible your dad could find himself in a position later in time down the road where his insurance company would not defend because they were not placed on notice in a timely manner. I'm not saying that would happen - it's just a possibility in the hypothetical, which is why a consult with a Wisconsin attorney could be worth considering because it could help your dad sort out his options and make a sound decision. Good luck
